Macramé feather keychain
These are the materials What are we going to need:
- Cotton thread multi-stranded
- Un metro
- Un peine
- A keychain carabiner
First we have to cut a strip of cotton about 17 centimeters. We will also have to cut 14 strips of approximately 10 centimeters.
Insert the longest strip through the hole of the carabiner, we fold on itself. We put a strip of adhesive tape on each end to facilitate the work.
Now we have to fold one of the short strips and place under the base following the image.
Now let's pass another strip on the opposite side, we fold and insert through the arch that we form on the opposite side.
We pull from both sides until the base knot is well tightened.
We repeat the steps with all the strings, adjusting the knots so that they all fit well together.
Now we have to comb each strand of cotton. We are going to carefully separate the strands until they are all well stretched and separated from each other.
Once we have the strands well combed, we just have to cut little by little until we get the desired shape. We are cutting down the sides until leaving the shape of the pen. As a trick, if you want the cotton strands to be more defined, you can wet them and let them dry well stretched out on a flat surface.
